Take a Break with the BSO

The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is sponsoring “Take a Break with the BSO,” a series of short recital videos on YouTube performed by Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) musicians that are designed to help reorganize you brain and rejuvenate your spirit. 

Listening to these 10-minute recitals provides the perfect opportunity to grab a coffee or snack, or even just to tune in and turn off while you close your eyes and take it all in. The BSO is proud to offer these performances to the hardworking students, faculty, and staff at UMB. Watch them here.
